23% Of Voters Think Ed is David

The Indy have a hilarious Comres poll in which 2,000 voters were shown pictures of various members of the Shadow Cabinet. Unsurprisingly the majority of the bland B-team were not recognised, but most damning is the facet that one in four people identified Ed as David. You might wonder what exactly he has been doing since September…

    David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

    Not surprising, same socialist shite whoever led them. It’s just a face.

    Mad Maude is full of hypocrisy today. Politicians in concert with bankers created the biggest financial mess in the UK since 1930. Instead of learning lessons and sticking to the Glass and Steagle plan, greed got the better of them. The ordinary working person is now suffering and going to suffer the consequences for their greed. Both in income and outgoings. Why the hell should they tolerate this it was the politicians fault.

    Mad Maude and Wet Dave will try to divide public opinion on the current strikes. But let’s be clear everyone from all walks of life will be affected by the politicians and bankers greed and stupidity. The only exemption, as with tax loopholes, are politicians and bankers. These two groups of people have not suffered any consequences for their actions. They continue to receive bonuses, second homes and alike on the back of the taxpayer. After two years there is still no significant change in the rewards for politicians institutionalised corruption. None of the mainstream parties have the courage or leadership to act.

    Mad Maude or CaMoron have yet to say why politician pensions are indexed linked to RPI and why they are the only group reaping huge benefits from their pension scams (final salary scheme, retire at 55yrs, small contribution etc ) when forcing everyone less to accept less- why the fook should they? They do not even have to turn up for work to still be eligible for their pension ie McDoom.

    Yesterday Byford at the BBC is not only entitled to his huge £220,000+ a year pension pot, he has also got a £950,000 redundancy payment as well. His colleagues are in a similar position. Byford is the BBC No 2 and must have some responsibility for the catastrophic £100 million overspend build. No consequences for him or Thompson, ka ching the money keeps rolling in. However, the licence fee payer is expected to stump up the £150 per year licence fee without question and pay a fine if they do not. The BBC farcical Trust- jobs on the old boy network ie Patton he who has achieved nothing in life for great reward- did not issue any censure or punishment for the overspend, lessons were learnt. Once more, at our expense. Where is Jeremy Hunt the minister responsible for this, what is he doing about it?

    School should not be a baby sitting service as portrayed by Maude, it is meant to educate our young people who successive governments have failed and the current reforms appear equally inept and expensive. Three types of school please, grammar, middle school for those who want to learn and half wit school for those who do not know how to behave and disrupt the education of the greater number. No social fiddling, based on ability only.

    Loony left Toady Programme this morning could not find any private school to comment on the teacher’s strike. They managed to find a northern state school head teacher who was working today “on his normal duties”, and certainly not doing any work that the striking teachers should do – like teach?
    So 1960’s Work to Rule is again with us.
    At least professionals are realising that speaking to the loony left BBC and having their words censored and scorned by follow up “interviews”, is not in their interest as they are only providing cannon fodder to “bbc balance”.
    Starving the BBC of oxygen (reasonable debate) will make them openly desperate, and hopefully provide even more exposure to their traitorous agenda.

  103. 103
    misterned says:

    In addition, both main parties have about 27% solid core support who will vote for them no matter what. There is an additional 10% points who will only vote labour OR tory and change from election to election. Those that supported Thatcher and Major in 1992, then said NEVER AGAIN! and voted for Blair in 1997 and 2001, then began to defect in 2005, and then voted for Cameron in 2010.

    Labour are currently being temporarily boosted by 10% points by the “anti government” former liberal democrats. People who are pathologically incapable of supporting any governing party, solely for the reason that they are party of government, even when it is their own party. So they will support the opposition party that opposes the government. They tend to be hard left, beardy weirdies, but could not support labour in power, because labour were in power. Their entire political raison d’etre is to oppose whatever the government does, purely because the government is doing it.

    They felt safe supporting the lib-dems, because our ‘unfair’ first past the post system unfairly penalised the lib-dems and prevented them from ever gaining power. They had their victim’s ‘poor me’ mentality supported at every general election, …… until the last one. So they now feel betrayed that they cannot play the victim because the lib-dems ARE in power. Instead of celebrating their own party getting into power, they are so disgusted that they defect to another opposition party. They are fucking nuts!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
